Cooper: That's it, I quit.

Josh: Cooper, wait until you try Gabi's waffle fries.

Gabi: With my special, secret-recipe ketchup.

Cooper: Ooh, what's the secret? (Whispers) 

Gabi: Bought it at the store. Here, why don't you why don't you try some? (puts ketchup on his shirt) Oh, no! Oh, I'm so sorry. Why don't you come to the laundry room with me and I'll help you get it out.

Cooper: Gabi, I don't even care about this shirt. I found it in a dumpster. 

Gabi: (kisses him)

Cooper: (chuckles) Oh, I see what you're doing. Quick, spill some on my pants.

Gabi: Ooh, I see what you're doing. (Giggles) You know what, I feel really bad about sneaking behind Josh's back, but it's also kind of hot.

Cooper: It's fascinating that your criminal tendencies bring on arousal.

Gabi: Wow, look at you with the sexy talk. Okay, let's get out of here before Josh gets suspicious.

Cooper: Oh, whoa, what about the stain? Should I take the shirt off?

Gabi:You do that and we'll never get out of here.

Sofia: What'd you do? 

Gabi: (Sighs) Why is it every time I try and do something nice you think it's 'cause I did something bad?

Sofia:  Well...did you?

Gabi: I did.

Sofia: Is it gonna ruin my night, my week or my life?

Gabi: (Chuckles) You're so funny And pretty. No wonder Cooper wants to take you on a date with Josh and Caroline.

Sofia: What? 

Gabi: Look, Josh almost caught me and Cooper together, and I covered and I said he was going out with you.

Cooper: At first I thought it was a bad idea, but now that I hear it, it's horrendous.

Gabi: It's gonna be fun.

Cooper: Hm An uncomfortable way.

Sofia: Well, no, it's not gonna be uncomfortable at all.

Gabi: See, I told you she'd be fine with it. 'Cause I'm not going.

Gabi: No, you have to.

Sofia: What's the word I'm looking for? No.

Gabi: But I'm making your favorite hors d'oeuvres.

Sofia: No.

Caroline: (Gasps) Thank you for getting me

Gabi:  So sorry to interrupt, but can I borrow my caramel-coated friend for a minute?

Sofia: Can I just say, when I grow up I want to be Caroline! 

Gabi: Yeah, yeah. She's tall. Um, listen, I just want to go over the break-up plan really quick.

Sofia: Okay, you're gonna text me, I'm gonna pretend it's from my ex-boyfriend, Cooper will get mad, we'll fight, break up, and then hopefully Caroline and I will stay friends.

Gabi: Okay.

Caroline: So Josh and I can't agree on what singer to hire for the wedding. He wants Harry Connick Jr. I want John Legend.

Sofia: (Laughs) Why don't you just get Lorde?

Caroline: Well, she's a guest and I'd hate to ask her to sing.

Sofia: (Giggling) You know Lorde?!

Gabi: Oh, so you're gonna be able to sleep after betraying your best friend?

Sofia: Okay, someone's a little mad.

Gabi: You were supposed to break up with Cooper at dinner, not make plans for another date.

Sofia: It's not a date, okay? We're just driving with another couple to see a concert and then go to dinner. Actually, that does sound like a date.

Gabi: You strayed very far from the plan.

Sofia: Yeah, a plan that you just assumed that I would go along with, like I do all your plans. You know what? You take me for granted.

Gabi: (Scoffs) I do not take you for granted. You agreed to the plan and then you went rogue.

Sofia: For Lorde!

Gabi: Well, you know what? No, I forbid you to go.

Sofia: Forbid me? Well, nobody forbids Sofia Maria Consuela Rafaella Rodriguez! Not only am I going to the concert, I am out of here.

Caroline: Oh, no need to whisper. Sofia told me everything.

Gabi: "Everything" everything? 

Sofia: Yes, she called me last night and could tell that I was upset, so I told her why Cooper and I broke up.

Gabi: (Sighs) Thank God. I mean, I'm so sorry for you.

Caroline: It is sad, but I made her feel better. We're still going to see Lorde.

Elliot: Well, why don't you complain about it some more, you whiny hag! I'm sorry. I feel like in the final round of the Hunger Games. Why'd we go on this damn thing anyway? 

Yolanda: My ex-husband just got engaged To a 28-year-old Who's, you know, 28 years old. Which means I've got to get back into my fighting weight In case I got to fight her. So so why did you go on this diet?

Elliot: If I tell you, you'll laugh.

Yolanda: Just cough it up! Sorry, low blood sugar.

Elliot: Some guys I used to work with back in the '80s are visiting and I just want to look my best.

Cooper: Gabi, I'm not really in the mood to make out.

Gabi: No, me either. Sofia and I got into the biggest fight. Everything is so messed up. Don't worry, I have a plan.

Cooper: Okay, I'm really good at pattern recognition, and every time you say you have a plan, something bad happens.

Gabi: No no, it'll fix this whole mess Sofia made.

Cooper: Gabi, this isn't Sofia's fault. If you hadn't told her to lie in the first place, none of this would have ever happened.

Gabi:  Well, excuse me for really, really liking you and doing everything I can so that we can be together.

Cooper: All of this lying and deception is really making my shingles flare up. And they've been dormant a very long time.

Gabi: Well, how else are we supposed to see each other without losing our jobs?

Cooper: Gabi, you're adorable and so much fun to be around, but I just don't know if I'm up for the non-stop adventure that comes with being your boyfriend. I hope we can be friends.

Gabi: Yeah, me too Or that you die in a fire I mean, me too.


Scene 11

Gabi: For lunch today, I made a Chinese chicken salad with radicchio, fresh orange slices, and crispy wontons. Enjoy.

Josh: (Whimpering) Well, just leave one. Cooper left early. He's really bummed out about the breakup with Sofia.

Gabi: (Crying) Whoa.

Josh: You're taking this pretty hard.

Gabi: Uh, yeah, they were just a really great couple. I was really rooting for them.

Josh: Oh, me too.

Gabi: And they weren't really dating, I was the one who was dating Cooper.

Josh: Wait. What? What are you talking about? What about dinner with Sofia?

Gabi: It was fake. I made her go. In my defense, I had a whole plan.

Josh: So I wouldn't find out.

Gabi: Look, this only happened because of your stupid rule about not dating anybody that you work with. I had no choice.

Josh: You could have Not dated him. You know, Gabi, I gotta be honest, I'm less than thrilled with you right now.

Gabi: Listen, I know I probably deserve to be yelled at, but can you just can you just not be my boss right now and just be my friend? 'Cause I really need one.

Josh: Of course.

Gabi: (Sighs) I'm just really upset. I feel like I lost the best relationship I ever had.

Josh: Come on, has it even been a week?

Gabi: No, I'm not talking about Cooper. I'm talking about Sofia.

Josh: Oh. 

Gabi: She's been my best friend since seventh grade, and now I feel like Caroline's gonna take her away from me.

Josh: I wouldn't worry about Caroline. She tires of her friends pretty quickly. I don't even learn their names anymore.

Gabi: Well, she won't ditch Sofia. She's a keeper.

Josh: And so are you. Look, we're all going to Lorde tonight, so why don't you grab Cooper's extra ticket and you and Sofia can maybe work things out.

Gabi: This is a really special night for her, and if I go, it'll just ruin the whole thing.

Josh: Do you want me to say something? 

Gabi: No, please don't say anything. Promise me you won't say anything.

Josh: Okay.

Gabi: And one last thing - Are Cooper and I fired?

Josh: No.

Gabi: Then can I go home early? I've had a really hard day.

Caroline: Sofia, can you take a photo of us?

Sofia: Sure.

Caroline: Okay.

Sofia: (Sighs) Um  (Phone chimes) Oh, Josh, you just got a text from Gabi. "Remember, don't tell Sofia that Cooper broke up with me. Hope she's having fun. " Cooper broke up with her?

Josh:  You didn't hear it from me, but yes.

Sofia: Oh my God. Okay, stop the limo.

Caroline: Wait, what's going on?

Sofia: Okay, uh I wasn't really dating Cooper. I was only pretending to for Gabi so that Cooper and Gabi wouldn't get in trouble with Josh.

Yolanda: What?! (Shrieks) I lost 35.

Elliot: Wait. In three days, is that even possible?

Yolanda: Okay, I have a confession. I wanted you to feel good about yourself in front of your exotic dancer friends. So I cheated the scale back 15 pounds. But that still means that you lost 15 and I lost 20.

Elliot: Uh, not really, because I also wanted you to feel good about yourself, so I cheated it back 15 pounds.

Yolanda: So I only lost 5 pounds?

Elliot: Better than me, I didn't lose anything. Except my self-confidence. (Doorbell rings) Oh, no. It's "The Boy Toys. " I'm gonna tell them that Elliot died in a pole dancing accident and that I'm Dwayne, his chubby twin brother.

Yolanda: No no no, you have nothing to be ashamed of. Now you open that door and you be proud of the body God gave you.

Guy: Elliot? Wow, you look great.

Elliot: Thank you! So do you. Not as good as me.
